Netflix and Science Fair Projects | #NetflixKids

I am a Netflix Stream Team ambassador and am partnering with them to bring you this list. All opinions are my own.

 It’s that time of year again…

It all starts with a science fair packet buried at the bottom of your child’s backpack. The next thing you know, that little take-home assignment suddenly becomes homework for you. Before you Google “easy science projects for kids,” we’ve got a variety of TV shows and movies that might help jump start your kids’ imaginations and get the whole family excited about a winning science fair idea.

Ready to get started?

Check out our list of movies and TV shows to stream on Netflix. For big kids, we’ve pulled titles to inspire blue ribbon-worthy projects, and for little scientists, we have titles that will encourage curiosity and problem-solving.

    you really do have to love Netflix, they really try to get involved to what not only the adults want to watch but what our children want to watch, and in there education 🙂 love it @tisonlyme143

    I’m so glad Netflix was a full resource of science kid friendly shows, we are special fans of mythbusters. Also Netflix has so many great documentaries. Learning not just for the kids.

  3. We are actually a family who enjoys science projects! Right now our oldest (4th grade) is doing a report and model of a lunar eclipse. We have been watching Cosmos as a family every week, but I would love to hop on Netflix to find some more shows that catch our interest.

  4. Myth busters and Jimmy Neutron are big hits at my house!
